Street Piano Medley--- features a Barrel Piano..
It's actually a "barrel-piano" we are hearing. The Barrel piano (also called "street piano"), was a stringed musical instrument (chordophone) in which a simple pianoforte action is worked by a pinned barrel turned with a crank, rather than by a keyboard mechanism. (In that way; it is similar to the old street vendor's "Hurdi-Guri") It is associated primarily with street musicians and is believed to have been developed in London early in the 19th century. The centre of its manufacture later moved to Italy...

Fun stuff; it sounds like someone was playing a wooden xylophone as well.

This is a very entertaining medley, very hyper sounding, as if two people were on one piano playing it at the same time.
